Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs #Blogtober

 Jazz up boring old chicken legs, by baking them in this delicious sweet and savoury glaze.

Chicken legs always seem to go on sale. Only thing is, now that my kids are older, they prefer chicken breast. So I was trying to find a way to cook chicken legs, that would make the kids excited to eat them. I usually just season with garlic, salt and pepper and roast them in the oven. I thought I'd try making a glaze to bake them in.

This chicken was delicious! I loved how thick and sticky the glaze became, while baking in the oven. I basted the chicken legs every 10 minutes, while baking, to get them nice and coated. The kids really loved the sweetness of the chicken. Leftovers were super yummy, paired with Naan bread the following day. 

Caramelized Baked Chicken Legs

2 lbs chicken legs
1/4 C nut oil, or olive oil
1/3 C low sodium soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs grated fresh ginger
1/4 C ketchup
2/3 C raw honey
6 cloves garlic, minced
fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
green onion tops, chopped (garnish)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken in a large baking dish and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, ketchup, honey, garlic, pepper and salt. Pour mixture over the chicken legs, turning legs to coat evenly.

Bake for 50 minutes, to 1 hr, basting the chicken with the glaze every 10 minutes. Chicken should read 165 degrees F on an instant read thermometer, when inserted near the bone. Let rest 10 minutes and baste one last time with glaze, before transferring to a serving dish. Garnish with green onion tops.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these s loppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles. Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it wa
